  • (s. bailey)
  • (c#m) - (g#m7) - (g#7) - (f#7) - (e) - (b)
  • My father (c#m) told me, lying (g#m7) on his bed of (c#m) death,
  • "boy," he says, "woman she's gonna make it, don't fool your (g#7) self
  • 'cause she's got (c#m) something to make a man (f#7) lay that money, uh, right in her hand
  • And the very (e) thing that makes her (b) rich will make you (c#m) poor (f#7)
  • The very thing that makes her (g#7) rich will make you (c#m) poor"
  • That's right!
  • Well, i put you behind the wheel of a deuce and a quarter, yes i did
  • Had you living like a rich man's daughter, yes i did, i sure did
  • While you were living high on the hog
  • You had me down here scuffling like a dog
  • Well, the very thing that makes you rich makes me poor
  • The very thing that makes you rich makes me poor
  • Don't you never ever make such a bad mistake
  • You know i'd rather climb into bed with a rattlesnake
  • Then to work hard every day bringing that woman all my pay
  • The very thing that makes you rich makes me poor,
  • Makes me so damn poor
  • The thing that makes her rich makes me poor
  • The very thing that makes you rich make me poor
  • Very thing that makes you rich makes me poor
  • Makes me so damned poor
  • Money won't change it, no no...
